Afghanistan campaign enters final stretch

Elections will see Afghans choosing a new president to replace outgoing Hamid Karzai.

    Afghans will go to the polls on Saturday to elect a new president to succeed Hamid Karzai.
     
    The new leader will have a challenging job ahead, with the withdrawal of foreign troops later this year.
     
    One of the frontrunners is Abdullah Abdullah.
